Lupe Fiasco looking for an Irish Hip Hop artist
A unusal opportunity for Irish MCs was announced earlier this week. Spin 103.8 FM are hosting a competition, the winner getting a verse from popular US hip hop artist, Lupe Fiasco, on their track.
A decent opportunity for some extra exposure the press release stated:
The search kicks off this Monday (March 7th) and the wannabe ‘Superstars’ have two weeks to send in a copy of one of their tracks (closing date is 18th March). Ryan and Tracy will announce the three finalists on the 28th March but it will be Lupe who will have the final say on ultimately who is crowned the winner. The song has to be playable on the radio and remember Lupe is not your stereotypical rapper.
‘… you know I don’t like to talk about the gangster gangster stuff and booty shaking and stuff like that, if you bring a nice record … we’ll pick the best one and I’ll do a verse on it and we’ll play it on the radio’.
If you have what it takes, and want Lupe Fiasco on your song, get your track into the most music station, Spin 1038 now:
POSTAL ADDRESS: Rap Superstar, Spin 1038, Level 3, South Block, The Malthouse, Grand Canal Quay, Dublin 2
I’m not sure about the ‘wannabe superstars’ talk, it might show in the judging, nonetheless it’s a decent comp and relies on the strength of entrants. If you are interested you know what to do.
